    You get what you pay for. PLUS, "None of your email are belong to us".

    I'm not too worried about that. For Outlook, accounts get deleted after 365 days of inactivity. If I haven't logged into my email in a year, I'm probably dead.

    Or the user has forgot to login for one year into his account, but i guess this is unlikely.

    Would you pay for an email account? Or are free accounts from Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, etc. good enough for you?

    The last question applies. Would I pay for an email account? Of course I would, but at the moment the free accounts are good enough for my purposes.

    I would recommend a reputable email provider that has been around for awhile. You don't want to sign up for johnsmith's email service which just started operating in 2017. Johnsmith maybe one man company and chances are they will go under sooner or later. Worst the company will scan your emails for advertisers.

    They support YubiKey. I recommend you use it.

    Some would rather maintain their own mail servers. Of course there can be lengthy discussion what about pros and cons when professional service could be more secure than maintaining private server (smtp) in the spare time.

    At work we pay and it's of course worth it.
    For home use, I'd never consider to pay.

    Anyone have experience with inbox.com? They have not been taking new accounts for a while due to major changes, so I am unable to try it.

    I have Gmail, Vivaldi mail, AOL and GMX all free. At the moment I can't see the advantage of paying. I'm pretty sure there was an email included with my ISP, so technically I've paid for that. I don't use it though.
